Writing small is the way to go! Learn short structure with this fun course!

Ray Bradbury believed the best way to improve as a writer was to write short stories and lots of them! In this class we’ll study short story structure and tools to practice writing short and infusing your words with power. We’ll also write some flash fiction short pieces and you’ll get an opportunity to gain feedback on your own work.

Lisa Kessler has published multiple short stories in print anthologies and magazines.  Her vampire short story, Immortal Beloved, was a finalist for a Bram Stoker award and has been reprinted in the Dead Souls anthology by Morrigan Books.  After meeting Ray Bradbury she took up his challenge to write 52 Short Stories in 52 Weeks and one of the stories grew into her novel, Moonlight, became a finalist in the Kensington/RT Writing with the Stars contest.

Her debut novel, Night Walker, won a San Diego Book Award for Best Fantasy-SciFi-Horror and the Hearts Through History for Best Paranormal and Best First Book.
